Bel & The Dragon, Cookham
Muddy says: A modern rustic reinvention of the traditional inn in pretty Cookham – a super-stylish addition to the village with great food and 5 luxe bedrooms.
If you’re looking for a relaxed pub, serving tasty plates of food, then look no further than the Bel & The Dragon Cookham. It is is one of the oldest coaching inns in England so has loads of original features, low beams and lovely nooks in the cosy bar area.
That said, it’s a bit of tardis, after extensive renovations in 2010, you’ll find a a modern rustic dining room at the back of the inn, a lovely walled garden and five beautiful en-suite bedrooms. So you can scoff, quaff and stagger to bed.
Situated on the high street of the picture perfect village of Cookham, there are some lovely walks along the Thames towpath, so it is great to know kids and dogs are welcomed with open arms.
